The Quick and Easy Kitchen Tile Buying Guide
This quick and easy kitchen tile buying guide will help you save time on your kitchen design process. Buying tiles for your home can be a challenge if you don’t know where to start. Tiles add an undeniable air of sophistication and style to any room, and it’s not uncommon to see them being used in rooms such as the kitchen, bathroom and even a fireplace. In this post, we’ll take a look at a few guidelines to help you choose your ideal tiles depending on factors such as room size and personal preference.
The kitchen is perhaps the most used room in any house. Because of this, you’re going to want to make sure that it looks its best. For the kitchen tile floor we recommend larger format tiles that are 12"x 12", 12" x 24" or larger. Aspen White Marble 12" x 12" or 12" x 24" tiles add elegance and beauty to kitchen floors (starting at $9.95 per square foot with free shipping)
Backsplashes are installed on kitchen walls. They help protect the wall from water splashes coming from the faucet by the sink. Even though they serve an important functional role, these can be used in a decorative fashion to suit your taste level. For kitchen backsplashes, we recommend a small tile size that you are able to grout like carrara mosaic tight joint tiles as shown below ($24 per square foot with free shipping). If you have a large kitchen you can go larger, but stick to subway tiles that are 3" x 12" or smaller.
